Extreme Noise Records: 20 Year Anniversary Celebration
That venerable South Minneapolis Punk Rock institution Extreme Noise Records just announced that they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. There will be three (!) weekends of events, the first occurring in April, the second in June, and the last in October. These will include live music (including lineups of some of the best punk/diy/hardcore bands from the Twin Cities’ history) parties, a record swap, and many other events TBA. You can find out information about the first weekend (April 4th and 5th) here or the second weekend (June 21st and 22nd) here or see below (information on the 3rd weekend is not available yet):
Part 1, on April 4th & 5th will celebrate the mid-90s Twin Cities scene from which Extreme Noise was born, and was featured on the No Slow All Go compilation. Bands playing were all featured on the 1996 compilation, including…
Friday the 4th will be an anniversary party featuring catered food and cake, DJs, giveaways, raffles, the release of a commemorative zine, and performances by Oswald Armageddon and Code 13.

Saturday the 5th will be a blockbuster of a show featuring the remaining 8 bands, giveaways, raffles, and more!
